They keep saying they're busy, but all they have to do is email a file to a vendor in Los Gatos. But anyway, here's a link to my thread: http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=372973
Oh and by the way, I had the tune loaded before the manifold was installed. It ran fine. It just had some weird gaps in power.
Thanks for the input.
The 128k miles attained on your vehicle is one cause of the loss in power.
Powerchips outdated software could be another cause, yet the engines are identical.
The exhaust is identical except for a more restrictive catalytic converter and muffler. I have a muffler delete which eliminates the latter from the equation.
330i horsepower is indeed attainable with this mod, with the right software.
